Goat Cottage









My tiny house is in Italy it’s called Goat Cottage, as it was formerly a goat/chicken shed. I restored it myself, it cost 3000 euros and took approx 6 months to do.

An old animal shed converted into a tiny house in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Owned and shared by Jilli P. More info. here.

      Thanks, it has a great BBQ area outside with solar strings in the trees, at night it is fabulous when it lights up.

      Thanks, I rent it out for holidays but I may move in myself when my kids come home.

    A very cute tiny house! really nice style, love the light blue and green with the white. Love the use of rock features. But there is no way I would use old animal shed to convert and live in, especially chicken sheds. The danger of residue from avian diseases is not something I would take a chance with.

      It was thoroughly cleaned and painted, I can assure you there is no ‘residue’ of any kind. I don’t live in it, it is a holiday let for ‘Glamping’ and so far nobody died 🙂

    I think it’s a lovely home! Love the kitchen sink…and the bathroom sink too. The only thing I don’t see is a clothes closet. Not to belittle fear of disease, but bleaching, cleaning, fresh paint, rock/cement would eradicate many sources of possible contamination. These buildings are delightful, but are disappearing as people tear them down rather than renovate. I’d jump at the chance to live in one. Well done!
